Charity News Roundup

Here are some charity news stories from the past week:

  • Festivals across U.S. downsize or cancel because of economy.
  • Call it a sign of just how bad the economy has gotten: A food bank in one of the Chicago area's wealthiest townships is pleading for donations.
  • An L.A. Times investigation found hundreds of examples of charities that pocketed just a sliver of what commercial fundraisers collected in their names.
  • An investment manager has pledged $100-million to Princeton University, in large part to stimulate research and education on efforts to prevent global warming.
